Nobody Expects...
The Surprise Mini-Rounds!

Not sure you can keep up with reviews? Want to play bingo but you feel you have nothing to offer? Need more excitement than mere bingo cards can bring?



What are the Exchange Bingo super surprising Mini-Rounds, you ask?

Why, the Exchange Bingo super surprising Mini-Rounds WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

A super surprising Mini-Round will be announced every two weeks during the ss/hg exchange.

If you choose to meet the super surprising Mini-Round challenge, you will leave a review on every entry posted over two weeks. Art? Review. One-Shots? Review. Two- Parters? Review. Review. Multi-chaptered stories? A review for each chapter/entry of the story.

Then, at the end of the two weeks, you will post a list of the direct review links as a comment to that Round's announcement entry. There will be a grace period of two days to do so (example: the review round is October 3 - 14, you post your list by Midnight EST (New York, USA) October 16).

The list(s) will be verified, and a winner selected by lottery. Winning announcement(s) will be made no later than three days after that particular mini-round has closed. The winner will receive a spiffy banner, the Queen of Reviews throne (imaginary) for two weeks, and a special prize.

You may choose to participate in as few or as many super surprising Mini-Rounds as you like. It’s a great way to keep up with the Exchange and your Bingo cards, if you’re playing those too.

You do NOT have to sign up for cards to play in any or all mini-rounds.

But wouldn't it be nice to make your work pay off twice?

Mega Participants (those who complete every Mini-Round) will be eligible for Super Dooper Special Prizes at the end of the Exchange.

I'm more excited than when Sybill took out Death Eaters with her crystal balls!

Pokey, does one have to be signed up for Exchange Bingo to participate in the Mini-Rounds?

Good question!

I added the following to clarify, o wise one.

"You do NOT have to sign up for cards to play in any or all mini-rounds.

But wouldn't it be nice to make your work pay off twice?"

Oh lovely idea. I wasn't going to do bingo because I'm afraid I'll fall terribly behind with law school, but a mini round is infinitely more doable. <3

Mini-Rounds? I wasn't going to sign up for this round of Bingo, given the EPIC!Fail of my last round... but I love this new way to participate. This sounds like just the thing I need to yank me out of the awful summer doldrums.

I <3 the genius(es) who came up with this new twist.
